Alban Arena panto breaking box office records

Cinderella is smashing box office records at the Alban Arena – and the clock has not struck midnight yet.

The annual pantomime opens next Friday, December 6, and runs until Sunday, January 5. An extra week has been added to cope with the demand for tickets which are already up on those sold for Aladdin last year.

Cinderella stars singer-songwriter and West End star, Gareth Gates as Prince Charming. Joining him as Dandini is BAFTA Children’s Award nominee and CBeebies presenter, Andy Day. St Albans funny man, Bob Goulding, star of the Olivier award winning play Morecambe, takes on the role of Buttons as well as directing the show.

A strong supporting cast includes two Shetland Ponies.

Ticket prices vary and more information can be found at the box office on 01727 844488 or online at
